Manchester United may reportedly look to increase their chances of securing the services of Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane by offering Paul Pogba in a swap deal.
While the two Frenchmen are currently representing their national team at Euro 2020, their team futures are up for debate due to their respective situations at Santiago Bernabeu and Old Trafford.
Each player is believed to be open to taking on a new challenge as they consider whether to accept fresh terms put to them by Los Blancos and the 20-times English champions.
However, according to AS, the Red Devils could look to take advantage of the situation by using Paul Pogba as a way of strengthening their often-criticised defensive end.
The report suggests that the Los Blancos are less likely to accept the arrival of French midfielder now that long-term fan Zinedine Zidane has been replaced by Carlo Ancelotti.
Nevertheless, the pair have just one year left on their deals, putting their teams under pressure to avoid losing one of their star player on a free transfer.
Man Utd direct Premier League rivals Liverpool are also keen on strengthening their defensive end and identified Raphael Varane as a perfect partner for Virgil van Dijk.
